About this Item

Small quarto. xxiii, 91, (7)pp. From an edition of 1,200 copies, this is one of twenty ad personam copies, specially bound. This is the first book of Francis Meynall's Nonesuch Press. Meynall, along with his wife, Vera, who selected and edited Donne's text for this production, and David Garnett, founded the Press in order to demonstrate that "mechanical means could be made to serve fine ends." Although the Fell type for this edition was hand-set by Meynall, it was printed on a commercial press at Oxford. This enabled Nonesuch to offer handsome limited editions for about half the price of contemporary private press books, such as Golden Cockerel. This book was a commercial success for Nonesuch, selling out the edition within the year, helped along by favorable magazine reviews by T. S. Eliot. In publisher's special binding of full stained vellum, decorated in gilt. Nearly imperceptible fading to spine, otherwise fine. Bookplate of Sir Frederick Richmond, for whom this copy was printed. Sir Richmond was a noted collector of early needlework. Bookseller Inventory # 27080
